Jill Hope Johnson

As an accomplished writer, the most recognizable elements of Jill Hope Johnson’s work focus on her love of dark humour and her interest in storytelling. Her writing demonstrates funny, edgy, and often unsettling portrayals of human relationships. Jill has written web series, screenplays, poetry, and stage plays. Her writing has been performed on a variety of stages including the Vancouver Fringe Festival, The Vancouver Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and Glasgow Comedy Festival. Jill is a past board member of WIFTV (Women in Film and Television) and has volunteered on various Film and Theatre selection committees. Currently, she manages North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre. When not at her desk, she is always up for the next adventure; heli-hiking in grizzly country, paddle boarding with mosquitos, and cooking with fire. She looks forward to working with PTC on her next adventurous creation.
